Turbomachinery Generative Design & Optimization
FEA & CFD Based Simulation Design Analysis Virtual prototyping MultiObjective Optimization
Enteknograte’s engineering team optimizes complex geometries with respect to given targets, such as total pressure loss and velocity uniformity with use of advanced simulation tools such as Star-ccm+, Ansys Fluent and Numeca Fine/Turbo. It does so by computing the sensitivities of the geometry itself versus those targets and then modifying it.
The sensitivity information comes directly from the flow field so the optimized shape is the one that fits the given flow best. Unlike traditional design methods that rely on trial and error between a given geometry and flow field predicted by CFD codes, we use 3D inverse design method starts by identifying what we want to do to the fluid flow in terms of 3D pressure field and mathematically derives the optimal geometry to achieve that outcome. This significantly reduces the time taken for each design.
